May 14. The ongoing vehicle of Toronto-based vocalist and conceptualist Meg Remy, U.S. Girls has come across as a completely different beast every time the act has project rolled through the region: with Remy in her formative solo, lo-fi noise guise; the next time fronting a slamming, full rock band; and last appearing as a weird, electro Madonna send-up complete with voguing backup dancers. After releasing albums on such hip labels as Siltbreeze, Kraak, and FatCat, U.S. Girls signed to England's seminal 4AD Records, which unveiled Half Free in September 2015. For this return to the Half Moon, the outfit arrives fresh from a run of dates opening for Iggy Pop in Europe. With the She-Devils. (Palm revisits May 2; Morgan O'Kane strums May 27.) 9pm. Call for ticket price. Hudson. (518) 828-1565.
